Garden with Insight v1.0 Help: Nitrogen

The compartments of nitrogen in each soil layer are:

organic nitrogen
fresh organic nitrogen -- in crop residue and microbial biomass
active organic nitrogen in humus
stable organic nitrogen in humus

The nitrogen submodels are:

Nitrate From Rainfall
Nitrogen Loss Through Leaching, Surface Runoff, and Lateral Subsurface Flow
Nitrate Transport by Soil Water Evaporation
Organic N Transport by Sediment

Note: Nitrogen immobilization is missing from the version of EPIC we translated and so is missing from this version of Garden with Insight. An immobilization submodel will be included in version 1.0 of Garden with Insight.
